The recipe includes lots of other ingredients that are deemed healthy for the Oscar, you can also include vitamins etc. however, Beefheart on its own is perfectly okay although I would only give it as a treat.

I may not always be right, but I am always the BOSS :-)

dried frozen food. it is a process wherein the food is being
dried while frozen to keep all natural contents of the specimen
intact, only the sap was lost. this is similar to the fresh frozen
wherein some items is being freeze while fresh or alive (like shrimp)
and never thawed unless about to be used or consumed.

yes, you can give your oscar mealworms everyday. however,
if you ran out of mealworm, your oscar won't take any other
food unless starve for a few days. that is the reason why
it is better to feed the oscar varied foods every now and then.

mealworms is a complete meal itself. you can give your o
as much as what they can consume in 3 minutes feedings, then
another food the next feedings. they will love such rotation
and you can avoid them being choosy
